We’ll take the road out to the countryside, my dear.
Where the mountains go forever,
and the birds are always near.

Snowy River Crossing. The lowest point of the the Main Range circuit track is the confluence (meeting) of the Snowy River and Club Lake Creek. The walking track uses stones in the river to try to get across with dry feet. Since the track crosses just above the confluence there is an ‘island’ halfway across.
Kosciuszko National Park
Rainbow Lake was created in the early 1900s to supply water to what used to be Hotel Kosciuszko. The Hotel burned down in 1951 as more than 100 guests and 92 staff members fled to safety in night attire when fire gutted the wooden two-storey Hotel
Kosciuszko at dawn.
About 30kms north of Coober Pedy in South Australia is the Breakaways Conservation Reserve, consisting of colourful low hills which have broken away from the Stuart Range and the stony gibber desert.
As you pass through the Mesas you can go along the dog fence track and return to Coober Pedy by the Oodnadatta Track.
The site is significant for the Antakirinja Matuntjara Yankunytjatjara People, whose name for the area is Umoona, meaning “long life”, referring to a particular species of tree found in the area.

A little late night/early morning experimentation at Sculptures by the Sea in Bondi.
Taking advantage of Cave Urban’s “save our souls” sculpture on the headland at Bondi and the lack of any cloud cover, off we (thanks for the invite Rodney Campbell) headed to attempt some star trails – even with the light pollution from the city we were sure to get something, particularly when the moon dipped below the horizon at 1am – through in some light painting for good measure and this is a rough edit of what you end up with . Just watch out for those security guards and people checking out sculptures in the dark – they like to shine their torches where you don’t want them.
